NEW MICROBIAL ANTIOXIDANT

FIGHTING MICROBIAL-INDUCED PHOTOAGEING

IMPROVING SKIN TONE, FIRMNESS, ELASTICITY AND WRINKLES

About the active

Helping your microbiota photoprotect itself to counterattack skin photodamage.

PHOTOBIOME™ is a prebiotic active from plant stem cells that stimulates the skin bacteria to release its own natural photo-defense molecules to photoprotect itself and fight the skin photoageing process.

Recognitions and Certificates

Mechanism of action

The new Sun-Microbiota-Skin axis
A new category of Microbial Antioxidant
New microbiota pathway to fight the skin photoageing

The concept

The interaction between sun radiation and microbiota can either have a positive or detrimental impact on our skin health and appearance.

Vytrus unveils a new role of skin microbiota in photoageing under the concept of the Photobiome Factor, which involves a certain bacteria community characterized by its capacity to synthesize and release certain molecular components metabolized by the interaction of the microbiota with solar radiation.

The active PHOTOBIOME counteracts and protects the microbiota and the skin cells from the photo-oxidative stress of harming sun radiation and make the Photobiome Factor bring beneficial molecules to the skin cells

The plant

The plant origin is compound of stem cell cultures of Pomegranate and Cotton. The Pomegranate culture is rich in selective cell membrane lipids (main ones: phospholipids, glycolipids, glycerides and free fatty acids). The cell culture is also rich in its polyphenol fraction (plant chromophores), especially ellagic acid as a precursor of urolithins. The Cotton culture is a cell lysate rich in protective cellular factors including a sophisticated cocktail of plant chromophores and antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and photoprotective polyphenols such as gentisic, salicylic, p-coumaric, transferulic, caffeic, and kaempferol acids, quercetin and rutin. The two plant cell cultures have also been enriched with two components of plant origin (sugars) that play a key role as potent protectors and strengtheners of microbial cell membranes.

About the active

Unique haircare skinification approach to improve hair & scalp Tensegrity.

ELAYA RENOVA™ is a natural active that boosts hair tensegrity, an arquitecture-inspired concept which considers scalp, hair follicle, and hair shaft where all parts are interconnected and the whole hair system is revitalized with a plant strategy.

Recognitions and Certificates

Mechanism of action

Revitalizing and reinforcing the whole scalp & hair structure
Protein carbonylation prevention and protection from oxidative stress and high temperatures
Boosting whole hair structure of CMC, proteins
Delivering nutrients to hair fibers and enhancing penetration

The concept

Tensegrity is a concept inspired by arquitecture. It explains how changes applied to an area will also exert effects at a distance because everything is interconnected.

A skyscraper must have a good tensegrity (strong enough, but also flexible enough to resist the wind at high altitude). Following this analogy, a healthy hair must have a good tensegrity (strong enough, but also flexible enough to be manageable, soft, easy to comb and maintaining its natural movement).

This integral vision of tensegrity has been transferred to the hair structure, launching the new cosmetic approach of TrichoTensegrity, appealing to the importance of scalp and hair structure and its influence on hair mechanical properties and biology behavior. Hair shaft and scalp are intimately interconnected as a continuum and each part is interdependent from the others.

The plant

ELAYA RENOVA ™ is made from plant stem cells of the wild olive tree sprouts (Olea europaea var. silvestris) through the technology of Plant Cell Biofactories.

Olive trees are characterized for their resilience against drought and high temperatures, their vitality and their longevity. Specifically, this ancestral Mediterranean plant has been chosen because it is an expert in lipids maintains more genetic diversity, providing the whole hair system with a revitalizing capacity through this active.

NATURAL PLANT PEPTIDES FOR HAIR GROWTH

About the active

Hair growth reactivation by genuine plant growth factors.

CAPILIA LONGA™ is a natural active ingredient that improves density in hair, eyebrows and eyelashes through a biological approach. It produces an epigenetic reset of the hair bulb, re-starting the activity of dermal papilla cells.

Recognitions and Certificates

Mechanism of action

Billion-level concentration of exosomes with applications in the increase of hair density and delay of hair loss
Boosting of hair growth, density, and quality
Delay of hair loss and reset of hair cycle
Activation the hair follicle regeneration
Stimulation of bulb microcirculation and nutrition

The concept

Hair loss is a problem that affects men and women and has diverse origins, but despite the different etiologies, there is a common link between them: dermal papilla cells become latent and all the hair growth processes stop.

Plant tissues and human hair work in a very similar way: they are both rooted, have seasonal behavior, fall in autumn, absorb nutrients from a surrounding micro-environment and have a pool of very active stem cells. Also, plant and animal growth factors have very similar functions and Vytrus efficiently uses plant growth factors for hair growth applications.

The plant

The Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a tropical and subtropical plant characterized by the existence of very ramified, cylindrical and orange rhizomes, modified roots that act as storage and resistance organs. They grow endlessly and have excellent regenerative properties.

Curcuma longa is one of the most studied plants in biomedicine, having a huge potential, with more than 230 different compounds described, more than 400 pre-clinic assays and more than 3.000 publications sowing its multiple properties (anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, wound healing, antimicrobial, DNA protecting, etc.).
